Well, I did it! I’ve almost completed my final project for my college class, Weblogs and Wikis, and this is the end of six weeks of posting five times a week about different music genres. It hasn’t been easy, but now that I’m finished, I can really take a moment to look back on the […]Read more "Final Project Reflection (Don’t Cry)"
This week, I dedicated my blog to artists overseas in the United Kingdom. I will admit I have a bit of a sweet spot for British accents and, in turn, British musical artists. After reviewing several artists from Korea, it seemed only fair I include artists from the United Kingdom as well to get a […]Read more "British Artist Analysis"
VEVO, Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, The 1975. This band is alternative rock and their style, sound, music videos, and lyrics make them one of the edgiest British bands out there. Their song, “Love Me,” from their album, I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It, is a bit […]Read more "Love Me (MV Analysis)"
This week, I’m reviewing British artists and nobody can say they didn’t see this coming. This post is a tribute to the classics and The Beatles are easily the most iconic group there has ever been and they kick-started the British Invasion of the US in the 1960’s along with artists like The Animals, Joe Crocker, […]Read more "Can’t Buy Me Love (MV Analysis)"
When someone mentions British musical artists, one of the first people that probably pops into your head is the incredibly talented Ed Sheeran. His song, “Thinking Out Loud” is probably the first thing to pop into your head. I will not be reviewing that song for this post because it’s very overplayed and I’m sure […]Read more "Give Me Love (MV Analysis)"
This week, I will be reviewing different British artists that have grown to be quite successful in the United States or are just starting to break through the barrier between the two countries. The first song I am reviewing is I’m Not The Only One by Sam Smith. This song came out in 2014 from […]Read more "I’m Not The Only One (MV Analysis)"
This week I reviewed Punk Rock music and was taken back to my oh-so glorious high school days where anxiety and cliques were the norm. I was actually surprised with the different punk bands that I recognized but didn’t consider to be punk rock, such as Good Charlotte, 5 Seconds of Summer, and Bowling For […]Read more "Punk Rock Music Analysis"
My Chemical Romance is easily one of the punk bands out there, basing a good majority of their music on depression, anger, hate, rage, and the ultimate dark side that comes with being a teen or young adult. (My Chemical Romance – Teenagers [Official Music Video], My Chemical Romance YouTube) They’re definitely one of the […]Read more "Teenagers (MV Analysis)"
Linkin Park is one of the more well-known punk rock bands out there and are big influencers in the modern day punk genre. This group has been successful since 2000 with their debut album Hybrid Theory and are still going strong today with their last release, a song titled Not Alone, as part of Music […]Read more "Numb (MV Analysis)"
Avril Lavigne was the queen of punk rock back in the day and it would be wrong not to tribute a blog post to her. The Canadian singer-songwriter made quite a name for herself in the early 2000’s and one of her latest hits, never growing up, became an anthem for teens and young adults […]Read more "Here’s to Never Growing Up (MV Analysis)"
